Regarding Jailbreak and Unlocked Factory Iphone 4
1. I'm tyring to get an Iphone 4 but what should i buy? a jailbroken Iphone 4g 32 gb or a factory unlocked one?
Which one is better?
2. What will happen after i finish my contract with vodafon or any other services (while the device is still locked) ? will they automatically unlock my device and release it ? or should i contact them or visit them and ask them to release it for me ?
Some parts of Europe (Germany for example) enforce via law that carriers must offer an unlock after a set period of time (regardless). Generally you still have to contact the carrier to requests the unlock, never heard of it happening automatically.

It also can work out cheaper over the lifetime of the phone than buying a subsidised phone and being locked into a high monthly contract. This depends on your usage patterns and the carrier - some offer more realistic plans - or if you plan on heavy mobile data usage - a truly unlimited iPhone plan (as offered with a contract) might be the best option.
It also depends on your needs. Personally I find an iPhone without some key Cydia packages frustrating. You might prioritise the ability to use any SIM card from any carrier over the ability to jailbreak.
